We completely enjoyed our stay at the Osthoff, the room was beautiful with everything we needed. We stayed in the two bedroom two bath room overlooking the lake, the kitchen was nice and had all the amenities necessary for a longer stay. Our balcony overlooked the pools and was relaxing and tranquil. The beach was meticulously maintained and was perfect... More

Our room was fabulous, like a condo: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room with balcony with lake view, kitchen. My kids loved having their own bathroom! Our 2 favorite on site restaurants were so delicious, a bit pricey, but totally worth it: Lola's and Otto's. Staff were so kind and helpful everywhere we went. We enjoyed the pools, the lake,...

My husband and I stayed at Osthoff for the second time and we loved it just as much as the fist time. Staff is very friendly and professional. Rooms were well appointed. Recommend splurging on the lakeview rooms which have wonderful views from the balcony. We appreciated having a table and chairs on the balcony for eating or reading or... More

Came to resort for a wedding and reception. The facility is expansive and the grounds are beautiful. I found the staff pleasant and helpful. I enjoyed the food at the reception as well. I saw one of the rooms when the bride was prepping. It's cozy and traditional. It's in a great location.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay. Lots to do, relaxing, easy!! Our 2br/2ba unit was clean and roomy. We rented a pontoon, kayaks, water bikes, played volleyball, relaxed at the beach. Can't wait to come back. We even left a bag of birthday gifts in the hotel room and they are mailing them back to us!!

I had looked forward to our visit at the Osthoff after hearing nice things about it from friends and reviews. Hopefully our visit was not the typical one, because there were some disappointing things about this resort. Starting with check- in--long line, people patiently waiting, a clerk opens up ,I expected to be called next ,but a guy who just... More

We had a very nice time at The Osthoff Resort. The prices were good but not great. We brought our newborn and she really loved it there. Quiet rooms and nice pool area and amenities. The Kitchenette is nice especially when you have small children and eating out every meal is not a great option. They even have a free... More

We had a lakefront room on the 2nd floor which overlooked one of the outdoor pools, the pond, gardens, and Elkhart Lake. Nice accommodations for 4 adults for part of the week and then added 2 granddaughters for the second half of the week and we all loved the outdoor and indoor pools. It was a bit chilly the week...

I was looking at the outside and amazed. I got to my room and was still impressed, but then I went to get a coffee when I woke up first morning and was disappointed. Their in room coffee service is about 3 years to old for a 4 Diamond Hotel. They use a regular small pot and give you only... More

We stayed here in early January, in the middle of the bitter cold/snowy season, and we had a blast! First off, the room was amazing! It was huge and had plenty of amenities (fridge, dishes, etc). We also ordered room service for dinner, and it was delicious. The resort itself is huge, so prepare yourself for a bit of walking.... More
